Catholic Primary School
‘We are growing together on our journey of
achievement with Jesus in our hearts, heads and hands’.
A gentle reminder that parents are NOT permitted to park in the school car park between 8.30-4.45. Please park at the top of Gipsy Lane or Bracknell Football Club.
Each class organises one class assembly during the year and we start with Year 6 working down to Reception Class in the Summer Term.
Our children love to use the internet specially to play games and to communicate with their friends. The way they start using computers and the guidance they are given at this young age can set them on the right path to being safer in later life.
St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Virtual Tours 2020
A very warm welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and Footsteps Nursery website. Thank you for virtually visiting us!
St Joseph’s is one-form entry primary school situated just north of Bracknell Town Centre, off Larges Lane and down Gipsy Lane. Our school serves the Parish of St Joseph’s and St. Margaret Clitherow in the Diocese of Portsmouth and is maintained in partnership with Bracknell Forest Local Authority. Our Ofsted inspection graded us as an outstanding school.
As a Catholic School community, we strive to provide the very best experiences for our children, providing them with the knowledge, skills, values and attributes to develop and fulfil their potential and live their lives to the full. Celebration of our faith through prayer and worship is a key feature of the life of the school and, whenever possible, parents are encouraged to join us.
The core behaviours of our inclusive school are our 3 Cs – Christ, Continuous Improvement and Consistency:
- Christ is at the centre of all we do
- We all are on a continuous improving learning journey
- Consistency in all our behaviours is valued.
Due to the current pandemic, we are not holding either an ‘Open Morning’ nor tours of the school. Instead, we have created a selection of short films of daily school life. We believe that our school provides a safe, caring, positive and stimulating environment that promotes the academic learning of all, alongside the spiritual, social, physical and moral development of the individual child. We are very proud of the creative and excellent education as you will see in the following snapshots of school life.
Please contact the school if you wish to have a virtual tour of our setting.
We have also put together some frequently asked question and we welcome any further questions or queries. Please contact the school office for any further information or if you wish to talk to the Headteacher.
If you would like a paper copy of anything on our website, please contact the school office and we will get it to you as soon as possible. There will be no charge for this information.
We see God at the centre of the day-to-day life of the school and this is expressed through the concern and respect we have for the efforts and achievements of everyone. We believe that the mark of a successful school is that it values and develops the qualities of each individual.
This is what we try to do.
Mrs. J.Dunlop (Headteacher)
